[UPDATE] The Ford Mustang's 5.0-Liter V8 Won't Become a 4.8-Liter in 2018
There are big changes in store for the 2018 Mustang—which could gain Magneride and a 10-speed automatic, and lose the base-model V6 engine. Now, it sounds like the Mustang GT's famous 5.0-liter V8 could be replaced with a new, slightly smaller 4.8-liter to aide efficiency.
Update 4:40 p.m. ET: An R&T source inside Ford has cast heavy doubt on this ever happening. The rest of this post has been left unchanged.
Reuters first reported last month that Ford's Essex plant in Ontario would soon begin production of a new 4.8-liter V8 for the F-150, which currently offers a 5.0-liter similar to the Mustang's. Ford Authoritynow believes that this 4.8-liter will find its way into the 2018 Mustang and will be announced at the Detroit Auto Show next month. Read more about the Ford Mustang's 5.0-Liter V8...
